Antwerp Lillo (West)
INEOS O&P Europe's manufacturing plant at Lillo in Belgium is located on a 45-hectare site in the Port of Antwerp, 23 kilometres north of the city centre. The site started up by Solvay in 1970. Polymers production began in 1992 with the manufacture of polypropylene and high-density polyethylene.

The PP unit is based on unipol technology and has a capacity of 110 ktons/year. The product mix continues to evolve into more specialised products with increased capacity. The HDPE plant in Lillo has a total capacity of 560 ktons/year on two production lines. Product applications include pressure pipe, automotive fuel tanks and blow moulding. With about 200 people on the site, INEOS O&P Europe applies the highest standards for health, safety and the environment.
The Lillo site produces a range of Bio-Attributed Olefins and Polyolefins, based on renewable bio based raw materials that do not compete with food production, for INEOS Olefins & Polymers Europe. Each step in the supply chain has been fully certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) to track the renewable materials and ensure their sustainability. The final product carries an attribution according to the displacement of fossil fuel-derived raw materials.
